Re: It's a PHYSICS award
Ever so slightly unkind. You say:
"Back to the Physics - working GaN LEDs was a tremendous achievement, and not at all trivial scientifically. Thus prize well deserved in my book.
Economists can fuck off back to their own brand of astrological hocus pocus on their own time..."
My opening paragraph once again:
"This year's Nobel Prize in Physics went to the three Japanese guys who worked on, and got right, the blue LED. It's an excellent piece of work, enabling a whole new ensemble of energy efficient lamps and colour LED screens, and fully deserving of the prize. And yes, it might well change society in wondrous and wonderful ways."
